    The Best in Vista

    We own a 03 Suburban Z71 and the Transmission went out on it. He fixed it in no time. And gave us a great price. Actually he has been working on our family car since he opened. And I don't think I will go no where else. Thanks.. Art.

    I took my '05 Suburban in when it had about 46,000 miles on it because my "check engine" message came on. The owner did a diagnostic and I forget exactly what was wrong, but he said it was something in the emissions system and that it was a 50,000 mile item. I thought my warranty ran out at 36K miles. I took my Suburban to Weseloh, as GM Exculsive is not an authorized warranty repair center, and after some arguing and discussions with my service advisor, got this $400 repair covered under the emissions system warranty. The owner of GM Exclusive could have gone ahead with the repair and profited, but he was 100% honest and told me that it was covered under warranty. I have been using this shop exclusively now for about a year and would never take my GM vehicle anywhere else. This shop is hands down, the best around!!

    Excellent Honest Service

    I agree with the previous review in that they are honest. They have always provided great service. I have also received some good referrals to other shops from them for services they do not offer. If you own a GM, they are the best place for you. I was referred to them by a friend after getting ripped off at Weseloh and have been very happy with them.

    The only place to go in the North County

    I made the mistake of buying a new Ford but prior to now I had a Chevy Blazer. I started using GM Exclusive about 4 years ago and they are wonderful. Famly owned and operated, top notch service and they are honest. I have sent dozens of friends to them for service and each and every time I get thanks back for haveing helped them find such a great place. If you own a GM product and need repairs, Don't go do your dealer. GM Exclusive is 1000 times better. What else needs to be said.
